Protect. Every. Body. is a $2 million national campaign happening at Planned Parenthood affiliates across the country – in Pennsylvania, PPAP aims to reach people throughout the state


HARRISBURG, PA — This week, Planned Parenthood Association of Pennsylvania (PPAP) is kicking off a 2-month statewide campaign to inform more people about the COVID-19 vaccine. The Protect. Every. Body. campaign is a $2 million national campaign happening at Planned Parenthood affiliates across the country.

A core focus of the Protect. Every. Body. campaign is ensuring that the hardest hit communities get the information and healthcare they deserve, and it seeks to close racial and socio-economic gaps in health outcomes by advocating for equitable distribution and access to COVID-19 vaccines.

With a special focus on young people, PPAP has hired multiple COVID Youth Fellows across the state to carry out on-the-ground outreach to spread accurate information about the COVID-19 vaccines. The fellows will organize in cities across Pennsylvania — Pittsburgh, Philadelphia, Lancaster, Reading — and work with Planned Parenthood Generation Action councils on college campuses.

“Ensuring reproductive rights for all starts with our communities having access to the resources and information they need to thrive,” said Signe Espinoza, PPAP Interim Executive Director, “and getting vaccinated against COVID-19 is one step towards protecting our communities. That’s why we are bolstering confidence in the COVID-19 vaccine among communities disproportionately impacted by the pandemic.”

Our vision is a world of equity. PPAP is committed to long-term community investment, providing resources and information about the COVID-19 vaccination, and addressing health disparities disproportionately impacting young people, people of color, those with disabilities, people with low incomes, people who live in rural areas, and those that are undocumented.
